    Really need a good keyboard my standard Compaq keyboard on my old pc broke so i was using my ancient Genius keyboard, then got a new pc and kept the Genius keyboard.

    The problem is that the keyboard feels clunky and has a broken spacebar so it only presses on one side. The keyboard looks horrible aswell.

    My mouse is a standard wheel mouse optical usb Micorsoft mouse ive used it so much that the logo has worn off and i think i need something better.

    Not looking to spend to much btw just want ones that will do for gaming i live in the UK also.

    Thanks in advance
    peace out

    I woud look into the Saitek Eclipse II. LEDs make it great at night, as well at the color changing makes it fitting on you mood. It types real nice, and I love it.

    For a mouse, I got a good deal on a RAZR Diamondback. I love the thing. I got Blue, but overall it is nice. I got my Mouse for 20 bucks off Woot, and my keuboard for 40 bucks. The G11 and G15 from Logitech are nice too, but my Eclipse was the penny pusher at the time.

    Both of what he said are great. I have the Diamondback and I have used the Eclipse extensively. DO IT

    Depends on you application. If you're gaming, use a Logitech G11 and OCZ Technology OCZMSEQRD

    G11/G15 are really nice keyboards, i ordered my g11 and when i get back from vacation it shall have arrived. I also got the MX518 mouse which after using my friends i fell in love with. Its rather large though, so if u dont like something big or have a small hand, it might be a pain in the arse.

    Logitech G5 Laser Mouse or Logitech MX518 Optical Gaming Mouse, the later one being cheaper but still a good gaming mouse

    I am using the Saitek Eclipse and Razer Diamondback. I am really liking both of them, they come with my recommendation.
